Big Plays Help Kansas State Get In The Win Column

After getting upset at home in last week's season opener, the Kansas State Wildcats looked to fast start and a couple of big plays to help secure their first win of the 2013 college football season. By scoring ten points in each of the first two quarters the Wildcats carried a 20-3 lead over Louisiana-Lafayette into the locker room.

They opened the second half with a 94-yard kickoff return by Tramaine Thompson to expand their lead to 27-3, but then the Cajuns found their offensive stride and turned the game into a bit of a shootout. Louisiana-Lafayette returned the next kickoff 100-yards to get a touchdown back, and then scored another touchdown just two minutes later to draw to within ten points at 27-17.

With the ball in their hands and moving the Cajuns were primed to make it a one-score game but Tye Zimmerman stepped in front of a pass and returned it 32 yards to pay dirt. Lafayette would score again but it was too late at that point as the Wildcats had enough cushion to finish off a 48-27 win.
